VirtualBox stopped working after Kernel Update Manjaro guest

Post by corcaigher » Tue Mar 20, 2018 2:21 am

I am having the same problem with Rosa 17.3, virtualbox manager starts up fine, but when I try to create a vm it always crashes with:
(Manjaro or any Linux distro)

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Manjaro.

The virtual machine 'Manjaro' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1 (0x1).

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component: MachineWrap
Interface: IMachine {f30138d4-e5ea-4b3a-8858-a059de4c93fd}

There are a lot of suggestions out on the web, but none work. It has been months since I have used virtualbox and I really miss testing various Linux distros.

Re: VirtualBox stopped working after Kernel Update - Linux Headers issue?

The trouble with your post is, that you give nearly no information. Not about the kernel you use in the host and not about the version of VB.
